    As in Elijah Dukes of the Devil Rays, who allegedly sent a threatening voice mail to his wife, along with a picture of a hand gun....and also burst into her classroom in April.
    Of course, Dukes has other things on his mind:

    "I'm just going to play ball, that's it," Dukes told the newspaper. "I've got to go. I've got a video game to finish."

    Wacky

    When I got confused, thinking Bo and Luke when I saw the thread title. Elijah definitely makes more sense.

    I thought why does Southside Johnny want to kill his wife?

    And, of course, this happens immediately after I pick up the fucker on my fantasy team. Fuck me.

    too bad you aren't playing in a league where homicides/arrests are one of the statistical categories.

    Worse yet, he used the N-word. More than once.

    "Hey, dawg. It's on, dawg. You dead, dawg. I ain't even bulls-------. Your kids too, dawg. It don't even matter to me who is in the car with you. N-----, all I know is, n-----, when I see your m-----f------- a-- riding, dawg, it's on. As a matter of fact, I'm coming to your m-----f------ house."

    If I had a nickel for everybody I knew who fathered two kids with two different women within eight days of each other, while their future wife was also pregnant...I think I'd have one nickel.

    Josh Hamilton, Julio Lugo, Delmon Young, Elijah Dukes...

    The Rays are quickly becoming the Cincinnati Bengals of the MLB.

    Wow. If that doesn't speak volumes about his character ...

    At least Hamilton has made a genuine effort to clean himself up and so far, thankfully, he's been successful. And now, expect to hear from sportsbruh saying that the only reason why I'm propping up Hammy is b/c he's white.

    Well two of those are no longer on the team, and one was having a terrific season until his intestines started acting up. I believe Lugo's incident was when he was with the Astro's also.
